This is a good idea but a little late. One factory and it's jobs have already left due to having to sniff doo doo all day.

Who pocketed the money we taxpayers payed in over the years to run our waste water treatment plant?

Cocke County has a long history of shaking down its own citizenry for the benefit of a few good ole' boys!

Our waste water treatment plant is a prime example of this, and because of the smell, they can no longer hide it.

The taxpayers do not pay for this service the rate payers do. The govt. agrees to apply for grants but they are repaid by the rate payer.

I really haven't noticed it that much because I usually have my head up my ass but I know George Bush and the Republicans are to blame. But don't worry, obama will fix it. If you disagree you are a racist.

Lotsa poop , a little smell, jobs gone from Lisaga and you can't find work to feed your family. Herst at that partnership nonsense gets paid $150 grand a year and he's brought lots and lots of jobs to the county.. Hasn't he? Says he has.
So what's a little smell?

If you don't want it to smell I know how to stop it for all you people fussing over the smell build you an out house and use that to poop and pee in. Then on a really hot day leave the door open and see how great it smells. LOL the wastewater plant controls all of Newport's waste duh it don't smell very good. Does it smell good when you dump in the bathroom at your house? The people that work at that place must smell a combination of all of your crap imagine how that smells and if you wanted me to work with everyones poop from all o er somebody better pay me well because that's just gross. So to you brave men that work at that place I'm glad it you do what you do at least someone will do it. So smell it or get over it.
